The Death Index is a vital part of the BIN. This spreadsheet contains family members who have passed and the BIN has verified their death personally. This index has now reached over 1418 names! The BIN verifies deaths by four different ways: Death Certificates, obituaries, photos of gravesite, or verification from a genealogist. This databases lists the name of the deceased, dates of birth and death, parents and spouse's name, location of the body, and what method the death was verified. In closing, we have these sources on hand here at the BIN.
